The membership drive of Fermilab ’s Friends for Science Education ended with three winners in a “Figure with Fermi ”contest,where contestants estimated the number of food items in three containers,and won the contents of the container. The correct answers all related to statistics describing Fermilab ’s education programs. There was a twist:Each answer required a multiplier for the number of items in the jar. The winners:
How many schools have participated in our
programs since 1995 (malted milk balls)?
How many hits does the Education Office website
www-ed.fnal.gov get per year (peanuts)?
How many students have participated in our
programs in the last year (buttered popcorn)?

GOLDEN TRUMPET AWARD
FERMILAB ARTS SERIES SUMMER SEASON
CHRISTINE LAVIN IN
WHAT WAS I THINKING?
In Christine Lavin ’s smart and funny theatre/concert you hear the soundtrack of American life:its people (Strangers Talk to Me);preoccupations (Making Friends with My Grey Hair);realities (I Was in Love with a Difficult Man);inanities (What Was I Thinking?);flutters (Harrison Ford)and hard facts (Looked Good on Paper).An award winning singer/songwriter/guitarist/comedienne,she has recorded and released fourteen albums of original material,sings her own and others ’songs on three disks of the “Four Bitchin ’Babes ”(a group she founded,nurtured and performed in during the 1990 ’s),and has put together and produced eight compilations showcasing the works of dozens of singer/songwriters.From her award winning songs to her adroit comedy and twirling batons,Christine Lavin is an original.
Emerging from the thick of the traditional music scene,the fiddling and step dance vitality of an April Verch concert is a breath of fresh air.Though she has deep roots in the fiddling of her native Ottawa Valley in Canada,April ’s broad repertoire features traditional and contemporary tunes ranging from French Canadian to Appalachian,from Bluegrass to Celtic,and Brazilian to Old Time, not to mention her own colorful compositions.No matter what you call it,April ’s music is beguiling in the way it brilliantly balances contemporary élan and traditional resonance.This young musician is highly sought-after,not only for her master fiddling, but also for her virtuoso Ottawa Valley step dancing.April ’s award-winning performances of this dynamic,high-energy form of dancing never fail to bring the house down.
CORKY SIEGEL’S CHAMBER BLUES
WITH BONNIE KOLOC
For almost four decades the defining cultural arts critics from Rolling Stone,Stereophile,Down Beat, Billboard,Jazziz,New York Times,and Washington Post have all recognized Corky Siegel as a “phenomenal virtuoso on harmonica...a deftly accomplished genius of the Blues ”and a pioneer who brings his original award-winning benchmark compositions to delighted audiences globally.New fans and longtime followers of Corky ’s blues career have been quick to embrace his freshly innovative, genre-busting Chamber Blues.
Chicago singer/songwriter Bonnie Koloc joins Chamber Blues for a multi-media event titled “Bestiary ”which features some of Bonnie ’s original artwork and songs.Koloc is often considered,along with John Prine and Steve Goodman,as one of Chicago ’s top three singer/songwriters.
